I think Monty Python addressed this issue quite effectively

"Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and
surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless
efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless
efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our
*four* *Amongst* our weapons...."

So there you go: *amongst* your #1 priorities...
